The amazing thing is though I am surrounded by some pretty amazing people. My when my friend's baby was hurt I couldn't believe how many people who don't even know my friend but know me were jumping into help. All of the people that volunteer for my rescue are just amazing, I seriously couldn't do it without them. All the rescue folks who are willing to pitch in and help when another rescue person or one of their dogs needs help. The amazing people who have adopted from me and are always willing to help with the rescue or really with anything. I get so upset when people are nasty / mean / hurtful. I guess it is because logically I don't understand why they are acting in the manner in which they are acting but I need to not dwell on the idiots. I need to focus on all the amazing people I have come in contact over the years and all the amazing people who surround me. I do need to make sure that those who aren't "trusty worthy" or those who are mean / nasty / hurtful go away, far far away. I am slowly purging and it is freeing to purge b/c you don't have to deal with the nastiness but at the same time it sucks when it is someone you have known for so long. And people wonder why I do dog rescue. I like dogs way more then people, they aren't mean and nasty on purpose. They love you just for feeding them, they love you for being you. You can be you around a dog, they are ok with you having a bad day and won't hold it against you and they don't lie and they aren't jealous of you. Oh I love my dogs.
This afternoon my mom came to my work and we drove to the Cleveland City Kennel. Is that place doggie jail! Concrete everything, no lighting... scary. I considered staying home and having fun printing some dogs coloring pages in that moment. But no, I couldn't' do that! Anyway, we loaded up 4 of the dogs seized from dog fighting ring and drove back to work. They all seemed so friendly and sweet. Mom brought them home and put them in their kennels. When I got home from work I had 2 vet appointments for different dogs and 1 adoption. Plus Sammie and Newton were getting dropped off so they can go have their spay/neuter surgery tomorrow. Once all that was over, I took Kassa (the dog Holly watched get thrown from a car on News Year Eve) and put her in the fenced area. I then took two of the dogs to the fence to meet her. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body but is about the same size as them so figured it was a good test. The first dog and her smelled each other and all was good. Then the second dog... she was fine with Kassa but quickly turned her attention to the other dog. She seemed a little stand off ish and then out of no where snap! It was like a switch went off in her head. It took everything in my power to get her off of the other dog.
The poor other dog just laid on his back like ok kill me. Once I got her off of the other dog she was pulling on me like she want to keep going. I got in between her and the other dog at one point but that wasn't going to stop her she went for my leg but I moved quick enough. I don't really think she was going after me b/c she is human aggressive but she defiantly is dog aggressive. I put her in a room by herself and just left her there to "chill out". I brought out the other 2 dogs and they were totally fine. I let them off leads and the 3 bait dogs and Kassa ran in the front fenced area. They were loving life. I just stood there and watch. It was probably the first time the have even been allowed to run free. If I asked them "what are you doing" they would run as fast as they could to me. Blossom would jump on me and want me to pet her head. Oh they are so sweet. Of course they made a total mess of their cages so that took me about 45 minutes to clean! And while all of this is going on, I get a phone call from a foster home about the foster dog being bad. I just don't know what I am going to do about that situation... I am at a loss. Oh, and I get a phone call from the hoarder lady that I have worked with before. She has a dog she wants to give me. Of course I said yes... and all this in one day!
Well, me and the sibs went. We had fun. I felt like an oldie, "This is the most fun I've had in years!" I even cracked out my walker for the occasion. Me and the sibs were probably the babes of the bunch. Not a lot of youngsters. Shame on them for not coming. Probably should have spread the word on fb too. It was a happy party time, with some food, dancing and music (okay I lie about the last two). But there were some awesome cupcakes, I think each cuppycake had a whole sticks worth of butter in the icing, yum. Okay back to the stuff you wanna hear. Rebecca Maizel, well I guess you never know what to expect. When I first saw her I was all like, "Celebrity!" Maybe I should have gone all paparazzo and started clicking away, "Over here Ms. Maizel! Over here!" I bob and weave as I say this. My fingers frantically pressing the capture button (?) on my camera. Rebecca Maizel was very nice and funny, very approachable, too bad I am shy. But she did come over to quiz us, "What are you babies doing up past you beddy bye time?" I kid, she was nice to us chicken heads. Ms. Maizel sister talked to us too, telling us not to be scared of her sister (or something to that effect).
I'll admit when I was at school big brows were not in fashion like they are now. I remember every sunday night plucking and plucking til my poor brows were a thin line and bright red! My friend used to shave hers all off and just use an eyebrow pencil to draw her brows... how things have changed! Full bushy eyebrows are finally in fashion. You only have to look at pictures from London Fashion Week to see as every model as a full brow. I have tried so many times to let my eyebrows grow to achieve a fuller brow but they just look so awful when they grow back that I have to hack at them again. I had been looking around for a while for something to help me grow my eyebrows but not make them look wild during the growing process. I found the Too Faced Brow Envy kit and I had to have it. Since having the Brow Envy I have been more confident with defining my eyebrows and I have to admit I quite enjoy preppin my brows now.
1.Use the razor to shave all the stray hairs. A razor is much better than tweezers in my opinion as you cant go crazy with it and take off too much. I tend to hold my index finger over my brow and then razor off the stray hairs that are left. 2. Take your Too Faced Brow Envy Palette and pick which hair shade you are. I am using the blonde shade with my Sigma E65 Small Angled brush. Just dab the brush into the shade and lightly pat it onto your brows. You only want to fill in the gaps you don't want to paint on your eyebrows that's not a good look. 3. Once you have added colour to your brows and filled in the gaps. Use a cotton wool bud to apply the setting wax to your brow. To keep the hairs in their place. 4. Then using the eyebrow wand that comes with the Brow Envy palette just comb through your brows so they look neat. 5. Using my Sigma E05 brush I sweep the Brow Envy highlighter under the outter arch of my brow. What I Used: Pink Eye Brow Razor; Sigma E65 and E05 Brushes; Too Faced Brow Envy Kit; Cotton Bud. Hope you enjoyed this post.
Hey! I didn't really want to post this (talking about personal matters always make me feel terribly uncomfortable) but I don't like to disappear without a reason either! I still owe you the shading manicure video tutorial but couldn't do it in due time (Sunday) because the Miss Catastrophe I am get a bike accident on Saturday afternoon. It left me slightly injured with burnings, bruises and wounds on the right side of my face, an injured knee and a couple of broken rib bone (which is ridiculously painful). I could have posted but the painkillers left me sleepy and unable to concentrate for 3 days so I've simply decided to cut on them to get my head back. My ribs hurt but my mind feel clearer now which means I'll be back with posts before the end of the week. Oh and I can't wait to be at least half recovered because I plan to go to Ikea to pick a couple of Helmer ;) See you soon!
